Wisconsin No-Zone Accident Attorneys
Although 18-wheelers and semi trucks are important for transporting everything from loads of gravel to mobile homes, they can pose a danger to other vehicles on the road. Thus, it is important for drivers of regular cars to recognize dangerous areas – called no-zones – that exist around all large trucks, no matter how skilled the truck driver is.
No-zones exist around all sides of a truck. It is unsafe for a driver to choose to be in this area, and this is where serious accidents typically occur. However, while truck drivers are often not held completely liable for accidents in this area, you may still be eligible for financial compensation to help you after an accident. If you are the victim of a no-zone accident, you should contact a Wisconsin no-zone accident lawyer from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today at 800-242-2874.
Where are the No-Zones?
No-zones are like giant blind spots all around a semi truck or 18-wheeler. These occur due to the tall, long shape of the vehicle. There are several different no-zones around a large truck, including:
- Left side – a small wedge where the cab and trailer connect
- Front – a rectangular area directly in front where the driver cannot see over the hood of the cab
- Behind – another rectangular blind spot extending behind the vehicle
- Right side – a wide swath from the front of the vehicle extending diagonally back from the cab
The right no-zone is especially dangerous because large truck drivers must take wide right turns, which can sandwich a car between the trailer and the curb on the right.
Although it is your duty to give large trucks the amount of space that they need, truck drivers should also post no-zone signs reminding you of their blind spots. If you have been hurt in a no-zone accident, you should contact an experienced Wisconsin no-zone accident attorney from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 today to discuss your case.
